Mercury, the planet of communication, and Venus, the planet of love and money, begin the month by traveling through Aquarius, creating a serious energy around connecting with other people—in whatever way you please.
The new moon on the 15th is a solar eclipse and a solid reminder to focus on doing you. And, while you have no issues finding someone to warm your bed, it’s important to make sure you’re not compromising too much to make someone else happy. You’ll have plenty of new ideas about things you want to try in and out of bed, so go with it. You may discover you love new things you’ve never even thought of before.
Here's what else is in store for you this month, according to Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology.
ARIES (MARCH 21–APRIL 19)
Remember how you’ve been mulling over buying that new toy? It’s go time. Mars, the planet of exploration, is in the sector of your chart about learning, making this the perfect time to figure out the hot buttons you haven’t discovered yet. Venus, the planet of love and money, is in the sector of your chart that represents a secret love. It could be that someone has their eye on you and is afraid to speak up, or maybe you’re keeping a new flame on the D.L. for now. Whatever it is, keep your eyes open—someone is really into you.
TAURUS (APRIL 20–MAY 20)
Better stock up on lube now, Taurus: You’re going to get laid—a lot—this month. Mars, the planet of action and sexuality, is in the sector of your chart that represents sex, so…you do the math. You’ll feel a serious urge to explore your sexuality more. And, if you’re not getting what you want in your current situation, you’ll mull over the idea of going elsewhere. A friend is interested in becoming a lover, but make sure it’s a good idea to kick things up a notch before you take the next step. You might just be better off as friends after all.
GEMINI (MAY 21–JUNE 20)
You want what you want, when you want it, Gem, and there’s nothing wrong with that. And, if something isn’t working for you in bed, it’s time to speak up about it. The new moon on the 15th gives you a serious desire to learn more. Maybe it’s time to brush up on some new positions, or try out a new toy. Venus, the planet of love and money, is in your career sector this month, making boundaries with a coworker a little blurry. Just think before you take the next step—it could be weird at the office after.
CANCER (JUNE 21–JULY 22)
You’re craving a partner who fuels your creativity, Cancer, and you want to make sure your current flame is doing just that. Try taking a painting class with your S.O., or find a Pinterest-y Valentine’s Day activity you can do together. Feeling like you’ve indulged your creative side will pay off big time in the bedroom. Starting on the 10th, several planets head into water signs, creating a romantic vibe for you. If you’re single, now is the time to go on some new dates—they could lead to something much more.
LEO (JULY 23–AUGUST 22)
You’re ready for some action, Leo, and there’s a good reason for it: Mars, the planet of action, energy, and desire, is in the sector of your chart about love affairs and romance. You’ll be all about creating sensual moments, and having fun while you’re doing it. And, if you’re not having a good time, you’re on to the next thing. Just look out for drama—it tends to crop up when there’s this much dating energy swirling around. You may find that your S.O. is demanding that you give them unconditional love, despite some obvious flaws—is this what you really want? Only you know the answer.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23–SEPTEMBER 22)
You’re all business in the beginning of the month, Virgo, but things take a less serious and way more sexy turn around the 17th. Suddenly, you’ll feel super romantic and have a serious urge to inspire your lover. Your partner is talented and smart—maybe they should start their own business after all. If you’re single, you’ll suddenly feel a little more serious about dating. Are you finding what you really want out there? And if not, how can you get it? By the second half of the month, you’ll start to establish a new connection with someone. Go with it—you never know where it may lead.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23–OCTOBER 22)
It’s okay to keep things light around Valentine’s Day, Libra, especially if you’re not in a serious relationship. You’ll have choices about who to hang out with around the holiday, so spread the love—you can hang with your partner on The Day and friends over the weekend, or vice-versa. Just do what feels natural and fun to you. If you’re in a new relationship, don’t put a lot of pressure on things. Have fun in the moment and just go along for the ride. You’ll find yourself questioning what you really want out of a relationship. Are you actually getting it now, or are you being so nice to your S.O. all the time that you’re kind of getting screwed in the process? It’s definitely worth thinking over.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23–NOVEMBER 21)
You’re all about bringing love home this month, Scorpio. Venus, the planet of love and money, goes into the romance sector of your chart on the 10th, creating some seriously warm-fuzzy vibes for you. Several planets shift into fellow water sign Pisces on the 17th and 18th, expanding feelings of romance even more. So yeah, it’s time to bust out the good candles in the bedroom. If there’s someone you’ve had your eye on for a while, now is the time to speak up about it. You’ll be surprised where it can lead you.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22–DECEMBER 21)
Mars, the planet of sex and action, is in your sign this month, making you feel all kinds of pumped up. You’ll feel a serious urge to explore the things you want and actually make them happen.

When Venus, the planet of love and money, shift into a sector of your chart that represents home, you’ll finally feel ready to take your new flame back to yours. You’ll be surprised at how much taking that step will push things forward—and kick up the heat in the process. If you’re frustrated with the way your love life is headed, talk to your friends. They may have some new ideas you haven’t even considered yet.
